If a horse suddenly starts to do something that he never did before, you need to look at what changed. If he just started to trip and it happened right after your farrier's visit, that is where I would start.
I would call the farrier and ask him to come out to recheck my horse. He could have a nail that went in wrong, he could have an abscess, or got a trim that was a little too heavy, etc.. That is where I would start looking.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
